Into the surf with Brian

So there I was... just home from a day at the shop when into my driveway rolls Brian Day! He was cruising in the P&H/Pyranha rig looking something like a huge multicolored hedge hog, boats sticking out everywhere. We sat down to plan out the next few days. What do you want to do? says I. He comes back with, lets go boatin. The surf was up and so was the wind, Do you surf? I asked. not yet, he replied. Lets go! I think he might still be trying to figure out what just happened. He had a great time, going down the line and cutting back in no time, the waves were perfect. We stuck him in a Watertech 666 a fast forgiving IC boat and cut him loose. Mike was on scene coaching from his SUP, I was trying out a new to us surf ski, the Infinity Stinger, which was great fun and we had an incredible day. In the afternoon we changed locations and I got back into my Lucifer, love that boat! from the sound of it Brian is about to retire from river boating and take to the surf, he left here a changed man. Sorry Jim.
